ISOLATED AND VULNERABLE

Neglected communities in places like Skyway live with multiple challenges. Without basic government support to drill down to help build a local economy, we are left completely unsupported in fighting Income Inequality that leads to potential displacement of residents and local businesses.

Skyway is economically challenged, and the residents feel the affects. The built environment is outdated to support upward financial mobility. Outdated policies terrorize residents and businesses. Outdated planning and infrastructure threatens the well-being of the community and their ecosystems to be self-empowered.

Going Deeper The Barriers to Safety and Peace

There are a significant amount of African Diaspora who are feeling threaten. In many ways, it is a symptom of much deeper problems.

IF AVERAGE BLACK FAMILY WEALTH CONTINUES TO GROW AT THE SAME PACE IT HAS OVER THE PAST THREE DECADES, IT WOULD TAKE BLACK FAMILIES 228 YEARS TO AMASS THE SAME AMOUNT OF WEALTH THAT WHITE FAMILIES ENJOY. THAT’S JUST 17 YEARS SHORTER THAN THE 245-YEAR SPAN OF SLAVERY IN THE U.S.

Our work is about saving lives and creating systems, that is tackling the underlying challenges that prevent communities from having the network of safety they deserve and need to flourish.

The Impact BEHIND EVERY DATA POINT IS A PERSON'S STORY Skyway has been studied, researched and used for reports to create new initiatives over decades but the impact to an estimated 20,000 residents, have been minimal. We spend time elevating the narratives of people traditionally not at leadership tables to pair with the data to tell a more compelling story. Encourage residents to come together to build their own eco-systems to feel connected and supported.
